Mapping and labeling of unofficial indigenous territories

Good day, in Latam we have a conversation, and your global experience could be very useful:

Have you worked on OSM issues of perimeters/boundaries of unofficial indigenous territories, which then overlap official administrative territories? OSM allows it, and users accept and respect it?

To be more precise: they are not recognized (by law) as Protected Areas; they are not recognized by law nor in official maps as an administrative boundary of any kind. They would be drawn by the communities themselves to identify their traditional area of use and vernacular authority.

Thanks in advance
